MC Core Colors Test




Our lustrous satin now comes in Cappuccino, Mocha, and Espresso, colors that make it so much easier to complement a wide range of skin tones.

These new colors are a great base for customizing pointe shoes, but they also work for many dancers just as they are.

All available as a special order — at no extra charge!


Cappuccino and Espresso pointe shoes match our Light Tan and Espresso tights. More colors coming soon! 

Matching ribbon and elastic for Cappuccino and Espresso now available, Mocha on the way.

“I could not ask for a better celebration of being a dancer of color than to be surprised by Gaynor Minden with a pointe shoe shade perfect for me!”

— Erica Lall, American Ballet Theatre

“Now — becasue the color of my Gaynors complements my skin tone – I no longer have to dye my shoes. This leaves me with a cheerful smile when I wear them, and allows me to spend time focused on my work, which is to dance with ease, comfort, elegance, and grace. I truly admire the fact that Gaynor Minden is appealing to the diverse world of dancers!”

— Annellyse Munroe, Ailey II Alum

      The best way to achieve a perfect pointe shoe fit is to go in person to an experienced fitter who maintains a large inventory so you can try many different options. We encourage you to use the worldwide Store Locator on this page to find a fitter near you.

      No store can carry every Gaynor Minden product, so call first.

      If no results are returned, drag or zoom to find the nearest location to you. If you are not able to find a store near you, don’t worry! We will do our best to fit you online.

      A short note on a sensitive subject: We believe that when a fitter in a dancewear store devotes time and sincere effort to helping a dancer find the right shoe, then that store deserves the sale. Gaynor Minden urges dancers to honor the work of stores’ fitters.
